In this article we look at the newest portable player from Colorfly, the U8 DAP

Review : FiiO K3 – Legacy

By | December 20th, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , |

The FiiO K3 desktop amp is the successor of the little FiiO E10K. In this article we look at the newest FiiO USB DAC

Disclaimer: The Fiio K3 was sent to us for the purpose of this review. The unit doesn’t need to be returned and Fiio is a site advertiser.
